|This little guy is about 3/4 of an inch long.|
We have had such a great garden year, with rain when needed and not too hot. The flower beds are overflowing and keep me busy weeding and cutting back. Along with all the butterflies and hummingbirds we keep finding the tiniest toads and frogs amongst the leaves. They are so cute! This is a little tree frog that probably hatched out in our pond. We've had various tadpoles in there all summer. I love it!
I've been trying to get some craft projects finished up before going back to work. The star quilt is finally done! Yeah! It took me 10 months, but I really enjoyed it. I'm not sure where it will go. I'm thinking the upstairs antique bed with the ruffled muslin skirt and shams. For some reason I didn't get a good picture this evening so I'll take one when I have the bed all made up.
Our twin grandchildren are due this weekend!!! We can hardly wait! Of course Andrew and Alison can't wait either. Alison is doing so well and hanging on till the end with no ordered bed rest. I can't imagine carrying twins.
We gave them our baby gifts last week. I knitted two little sweater and hat sets for this fall or winter. They were so quick and fun to make. We also gave them some newborn outfits just because they are so darn cute! With matching booties and mitts. And of course the most important, a check, which always comes in handy for a young family.
I wish I had taken a picture of the baby card I made. It was so cute too! I used a Papertrey Ink stamp of a onsie and cut out two of them. On the inside it said "Good things come in multiples." Aren't baby things so fun?
Well, I had better get to bed. Have to get up at 6:00 and I am not a morning person. (I have been sleeping till 9 all summer.) Have a great week everyone and I'll be back to share the baby pictures!
